Scrutinised for what she wears and how she wears itwhenever she appears, there can be few more powerful fashion influencers than the Princess of Wales.
Whether it is dresses, shoes or skirts, the styles she chooses can sell out within hours of the pictures hitting social media sites – to the extent that Princess Catherine has even been known to choose deleted lines to mitigate the effect.
Even her daughter Charlotte’s outfits are watched and copied.
But if this astonishing sway over the high street – entirely unasked-for – might seem another responsibility for Kate to carry, there is one group of people who are only too glad about the influence she brings to bear.
They are the British fashion designers the princess has consistently championed since first stepping on to the public stage – and the manufacturers and retailers who depend upon their success.
